Nancy, I just had to let you know what a wonderfully energising and stimulating time I had with you this morning.  Our time together went so fast and we covered so much ground and shared so much. It was wonderful.I returned home and I became aware that I was experiencing a fascinating sense that my inner pot had been well stirred up and I felt I was sensing outwards, with no expectation but intrigued about how things will go for my creative juices.Your suggestions and feedback were invaluable. Whilst we were talking, I had a great sense of relief about needing to let go of my current position and to venture out on my own voyage of discovery.  I am excited about starting my journey. 

Before seeking Nancy's help, I had been frustrated with my efforts to paint for a while and had felt 'creatively stuck'. My first session with Nancy  proved such a buzz. As we talked about painting and creating art work, we discussed different ways to approach my work which I found really energising. I now feel much freer to experiment more and to explore how my acrylic paints work."  Peter

Art Tutoring

Practicing art not only holds an opportunity to create, but is an avenue to find a closer connection to yourself. With this brings confidence and resilience in an ever-changing, often unpredictable world. When we take time to find that artist within, it allow space for that inner voice to be heard and valued. 

Art tutoring is a way to gain insights into your own wellbeing and develop your personal artistic style at the same time. Book in for a one-off sessions to get you going for a practice at home or set up a series of sessions to get the creative juices really flowing!

Mosaic Tutoring

Mosaic is a fantastic form of mindful meditation. We have the tools, materials and the inspiration to help you achieve any mosaic project. More people are coming to realise what fun mosaics can be, with fabulous results. If you are interested in learning how or just want some help to get your project started, I can meet you for a one-on-one coaching session in the studio. You are welcome to team up with a friend (or up to 6 people) for your session, each extra person pays half price. 

Community projects

For schools and community groups who want to make a large mosaic impact. I can guide you from the plan of your project, right  through to implementation and installation - with amazing results!  We start with a meeting to discuss your ideas and take it from there. Whether you need just a bit of advice or a full plan and facilitator, I have everything you need.

Art as a Meditation

As an artist, I find it invaluable to spend some time each week creating, painting or being inspired by the art of others.  This practice is like a meditation it grounds me and takes me completely away from day to day concerns. 

Because an art practice is so beneficial, I have found I have to make a special effort to include art on a regular basis. With this knowledge in mind, I have set up art coaching sessions and short courses to enable you to have tuition, guidance or inspiration relating to your art practice. This allows you to develop your own style and get you going on your own projects at home with the full benefit of an art practice in your life.
